Gists are a feature of git, and a nice way to share snippets of code or short documents. They benefit from being private or public, and can be cloned etc like standard git repositories.

To post a git from the command line there is a tool available called gist, installed with brew:

brew install gist

Then set your git username + password:

git config --global github.user "jbloggs"
git config --global github.password "welcome1"

Then pass gist the content to post, either on stdin or as a file:

gist filetopost.sh

Does the Gist automatically pick up the type of file (i.e. Shell, Markdown etc)?
